“If Republicans block closure of the legislation before us, I will introduce a proposal to change the rules to allow verbal obstruction of this legislation,” the New York Democrat said Tuesday after a meeting with Democrats in Senate to discuss a way forward. for the legislation. “Historically, changes to Senate rules have been necessary to accommodate changing circumstances.”

A united Republican opposition in addition to Manchin and Sinema is obstructing the Democratic effort to eliminate the legislative filibuster, making it nearly impossible to pass a change in Senate rules that could push election review legislation beyond the finish line.

Both Manchin and Sinema have resisted their party’s push to remove the filibuster in recent weeks and are still opposed to plans to implement a verbal filibuster, Fox News’ Chad Pergram reported Tuesday.

Manchin emphasized his opposition to the Senate rules change ahead of the meeting, saying he had not changed his mind on the matter.

“The majority of my colleagues in the Democratic caucus, they’ve changed. They’re changing their minds,” Manchin said Tuesday. “I respect that. You have the right to change your mind. I didn’t. I hope they respect that too. I never changed my mind about the filibuster.” CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

LAPD identify Shawn Laval Smith as Brianna Kupfer’s suspected killer
Los Angeles police have identified the suspected killer of 24-year-old Brianna Kupfer, a UCLA graduate student who was stabbed to death at her job at a furniture store last week.

Shawn Laval Smith, 31, should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the LAPD.

Los Angeles County jail records show Covina police arrested him on Oct. 27, 2020, for a misdemeanor. He was released on $1,000 bond. The outcome of this case was not immediately clear.

A law enforcement source told Fox News Digital that Smith had a track record that spanned both coasts, including San Francisco and South Carolina. His most recent charge is said to be shoplifting – and he ended up in jail in San Mateo after he allegedly assaulted a police officer.

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE.

Progressive prosecutors blasted as homicide numbers rise in Los Angeles and other left-leaning cities
The policies of progressive district attorneys in Los Angeles and around the country are failing in their own communities, according to the LA County attorney who led the Gabriel Fernandez case in 2014.

After a homeless man allegedly stabbed a 24-year-old California grad student to death at a furniture store – and another allegedly killed a 70-year-old woman at a Los Angeles bus stop last week – Jon Hatami says voters need to pay more attention to DA races in their communities and choose more qualified candidates.

Brianna Kupfer was at work Thursday at the Croft House, an upscale furniture store on North La Brea Avenue, when the suspect, whom the LAPD later identified as 31-year-old Shawn Laval Walker, walked in and pulled her over. stabbed to death. Investigators called it a “random act” at a news conference on Tuesday.

Sandra Shells was a longtime emergency room nurse who police said needed brain surgery after an attack near Union Station early Thursday morning. She succumbed to her injuries in the same hospital where she worked. Kerry Bell, a 48-year-old homeless man who police allegedly arrested nearby, faces a single murder charge.

Crime in Los Angeles is on the rise – and critics, including Hatami, blame the progressive politics of the city’s new cop, George Gascon, and other left-wing leaders like him.

“When you say, ‘Here’s a list of crimes I’m not going to prosecute’ – Yeah, you’re not a good prosecutor,” said longtime Los Angeles prosecutor Hatami. “And you’re not a good prosecutor. That shouldn’t be the first thing you do when you become DA” CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE.

A FEW SEPARATE WORDS

Sean Hannity exposed the chaotic state of the leftist establishment in the opening monologue of Tuesday’s “Hannity.”

“Tonight the Democratic Party, its close allies in the media crowd are in a state of absolute chaos,” he said. “The poll numbers are imploding. [President] Biden is struggling all over the place. Many are in a state of despair. Predictably, some call their political opponents racist. Others in Congress are throwing in the towel and retiring en masse. They completely want out. At least one outlet is calling on the National Guard to round up unvaccinated Americans who dare to come out of their homes.”
